An agreement was announced today that Videotron customers can now support registered charities through text donations. The dollar amounts are either $5 or $10 and it’ll appear on your wireless statement and billed as a tax-exempt transaction.
Bernard Lord, MGFC Chair and CWTA President stated that “On behalf of the Mobile Giving Foundation Canada, I extend our appreciation to Videotron for their efforts in providing this new mobile channel for their customers to support their favourite causes. Canadians have overwhelmingly embraced the power of mobile giving, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for more than 100 registered charities in the past year alone.”
